kind of what i thought. probably most of the custom gun builders make parts for the ones they build. my dad has one in 243 he bought in '68 or 69. totally stock except for scope and sling. still looks new.

Not so much as you think. What will fit and work for a Remington 700 reciever works for alot of the aftermarket recievers. They just pattern the external dimensions of their recievers to work for what is made for the Remington 700 reciever. For this disiplin of shooting my observation is that barrels are expendable. 243 guys, for example, use up 2 or so barrels a year if they are going to stay competitive. Also, in my observations, although a barrel burner, 243 (6mm) does rock.

Axxe55 finding a smith to thread on a muzzle brake and putting on a recoil pad is probably what im gonna do, Im defenatly not gonna shoot this gun enough to put a couple grand into it. Its not nearly as bad as everyone I know was making it out to be, Its a little more kick than my remington 1100 3inch magnum but defenatly something I cvan deal with. Thanks for the input guys.

a few years ago, i shot a friends custom built 340 Weatherby Magnum rifle, that was muzzle braked. it was night and day difference in recoil. i have had large caliber magnums in the past, and the only way i would own one now is if it had a muzzle brake on it.

The 300 Win. Mag. rifle I have weighs 17 lbs. 1 oz. which includes the scope weight of 39 oz's. and with the muzzel brake and the 1" Decel pad on the butt of it the felt recoil feels less than a .223 cal.

mrm14, at 17 lbs, i don't think it matters if it has a muzzle brake!
